Few tentative intervals today- was pushed for time and starving, so only did 4 of the planned 6 intervals, but it's probably best to ease into it, since I've not run at that speeed (and only one or 2 runs at faster than recovery pace) in the last month or so.
Aiming for 15 mile LSR thursday morning, or maybe slightly longer, since the run went so smoothly on sunday.
If your toenail is wobbling, you probably have a blister underneath it- best to do is pop the blister with a sterile needle pushed in from the tip of the toe- if you go through the dead skin bit it doesn't hurt. The toenail will sort of deflate, but stay attached, so you'll recover and ger back running quicker.
Many of the plans you'll see are for beginners, starting from nil- this would obviously be a step back, but ther might be a plan you can find that just builds from roughly your current level, and that would be more sensible.
Try looking at more of the intermediate- style plans, as you're looking to do better than just get round, and with the level you are already at, you don't need to go back to the beginning.
JUst back from my 14 miles LSR- longest since the ultra- my recovery/ multiple marathon plan seems to be working out , and I felt really good today- 2 weeks to my next marathon- I'll get one more slightly longer run in , then see how the marathon goes off a 1 week taper- which I've never tried before!
Ouch! take care MG1!. I fell badly on ice in the winter, and it has taken a long time for my knee to fully recover. Lots of ice on the bruises!
Well done on the money - winning performance, NP!- does this make you a professional now?
MY run today was great- ended up doing 14 miles , mostly on trails, along part of the Clyde stride route (I'm not actually doing the race this year, but I know the route, so can show other folk on recce runs, and it's nice to run in company.) We were a group of 7, most of whom I've bumped into on facebook, or at races. I was worried that I'd be one of the slowest in th egroup, but actually ended up in the lead 3 for most of the run, so my fears of holding everyone back were not true.
I'm actually feeling quite strong now, and my niggles seem to have cleared after the Fling.
